I also live in the South, so I know what you mean about temperatures being one extreme or another. Because of that, I’d never have an outdoor wedding here. I remember winters that were frigid, but I also recall the temperature this past Christmas being in the 70s. If I had an outdoor wedding in December it would definitely be early December because its much more likely to be milder. I also think people in the South are less accustomed to cold weather, so we tend to be overly dramatic when the temps start dropping. I know I didn’t exactly answer your question, but good luck with whatever you decide!

@Missblondebee:  I live on the east coast and I am also having a winter wedding.  I know how unpredictable the temps can be here in the winter, like you said it can be either mild or freezing.  Personally I would never do an outdoor winter wedding because of this, aside from the guests being miserable if its too cold, what about the bride?  I wouldnt want to be standing outside with a coat covering my beautiful dress!  And most ceremonies last about 30 minutes?  No way!  What I am doing is having both the ceremony and reception inside, but outside we have a deck overlooking the water so we will have heatlamps, warm drinks, etc, out there during the reception

@Missblondebee:  In the snow?  It could be SO SO amazingly pretty.  DO IT!  And wear a coloured, long cloak over your dress, and a big furry muff in front… yes. You have to do this now, so that I can see pictures of it.

@Missblondebee:  Destination wedding in Lake Louise.  You have to do it.  I have decided.  You will now plan your wedding around my desire for specific photographs I’d like to see.  I HAVE SPOKEN!

@Missblondebee:  Like a PP said, it could be so beautiful–in theory.  Pictures may look great but your teeth will be chattering along with everyone who has to sit outside.  Plus in the winter if there is no snow, then what will it look like?  Brown grass?  Bare trees?  lol

@Missblondebee:  It could be really beautiful with the everything adding up correctly. What is winter like in your area?

ETA: I just saw the end of your post. Let me rephrase … what is the landscape like during winter in Georgia?
